It's been tough trying to find internet access in the mid-West as opposed to the West. No internet cafe's and the last three motels I stayed at didn't have wireless. I'm at a Best Western right now, pretending to be a guest just so I can get on-line. Well, I've started the Lewis and Clark Trail portion of the 2005 Iron Butt Tour in earnest. Weather's been pretty damn good. First time I've been in this region when it wasn't humid at all. It did rain about half the night a couple of days ago in Nebraska but it stopped by the time I hit the road. The only real complaint I have has been the wind. I thought the cross-wind in Kansas was bad but it was worse in Nebraska. I actually went to bed last night with a stiff neck and a headache from fighting the wind all day. Today, in South Dakota, the wind was even worse. Luckily, it was a tail wind for about half the day. Had a great time in KC with KC Cheef and Deb. Rode out with Ed the next day and stopped at some very nice places along the Lewis and Clark Trail. Thanks for everything, Ed. It was great to get a chance to ride with you. Almost hit a deer in Nebraska, yesterday. It was near dusk and, even though the sun was in my eyes, luckily I saw the damn thing on the side of the road. I slowed down and moved over to avoid it. All it had to do was stay still or turn around and run away but, no, it darted right in front of me. Hit the brakes hard and missed it by inches. Probably would have broadsided it if I hadn't seen it on the side of the road to begin with. Also, had a cool time at Fort Atkinson, Nebraska yesterday. The history buffs were doing a reenactment of the way life was at the fort in the 1820's. Full outfits and everything. I just happened to show up and got to watch. I was the only one there other than those in costume and, boy, did I look out of place in motorcycle leathers. As a side note, it appears that traditional female garb for that era did not include underwear. Tried to get a picture but they wouldn't stand still. Anyway, I'm off for North Dakota tomorrow and Montana after that. The way things have been, I wouldn't be surprised if I'm not able to post again until I get to Great Falls almost two weeks from now. Friday, I will start my 8 day kayaking adeventure down the Upper Missouri so, unless my cell phone works there, which I seriously doubt, I'll be incommunicado for awhile. The bike's still running fine. Haven't had any serious problems since Colorado (thanks again, Gary). The rear tire's even looking good. I would have expected to get a new one about now. Guess the realignments I did before I left made a difference. Anyway, I'll post again when I get the chance but, don't hold your breath. Talk to you later.
